Travel: Coronavirus

Question for Department for Transport

UIN HL5055, tabled on 2 June 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have any plans to adjust the proposed quarantine regime for arrivals into the UK to reflect the difference in risk posed by persons in different countries according to the respective infection rates in those countries.

The Government is carefully considering the concept of ‘international travel corridors’ (also known as air bridges), which have the potential to remove the need for quarantine measures for incoming passengers from low risk countries. It is currently not agreed Government policy.

Ultimately, we will be guided by the science, and the health of the public will always come first.
